Opinions on front lower control arms

When I put on my 3" lift and the proper bump stocks I noticed the bump stocks are at an angle where if I were to flex they could hit the coil spring (sorry I don't have any pics and I'm not sure when I will be able to take any). I was told to look into some lower control arms but not sure what to get. Of course I want good quality but I don't want to spend over $200.

Are you sure your front axle is centered after installing the lift? Did you install an adjustable front trackbar? I bet your axle is shifted towards the passenger side 3/4", which is causing the bumpstops to rub against your coils.

Yes I have an adjustable front track bar. And wouldn't a front end alignment fix the axle issue you said or am I wrong.

If you want good control arms for less than $200.00 you had best talk to Santa or watch for a used set of Currie , Savvy or Metalcloak . Anything less than their quality is not worth installing . You want Real Johnny Joints not a joint that looks like a JJ OR a for an even smoother ride and as good flex you can go a Metalcloak Duroflex joint on both ends as I have . If it isn't a real JJ or a Duroflex joint it is a unreliable cheap immitation and wont last . Its more money but do some searchs and see for yourself what happens when you skimp on control arm joints

Thanks for the help. I looked up those metalcloak with the duroflex joints and I think I'm going to save up for those.
